NEW TOOL: What does subject matter integration look like in elementary instruction? Including science is key!

Posted on October 06, 2019

Cross-subject integration is a central implementation strategy. Learning and applying subject matter knowledge from science, history, and the arts in the context of literacy and math instruction helps instruction be more meaningful. It also helps provide efficiences to instruction. Unfortunately, school subjects are still often siloed and not integrated. This STEM Teaching Tool frames these issues and provides detailed guidance for how to approach cross-subject (interdisciplinary) integration.
